This saved us a lot of time and hassle in San Francisco. Cable car fares are $6.00 per ride and this pass meant we could ride as often as we wanted, and also got around SFO on the metro buses as well. Pity it didn't include BART too.
Great value as includes cable car and street cars so easy to get around and no need to buy extra tickets. Didnt use all the passes to attractions but helpful that book includes opening times and travel directions
Good value for money, 9 days coverage
Cable Car - 6 $ each trip. However, with this city pass we had unlimited trips
The best parts of this pass were the Bay cruise and the Cable Car. Ran out of time in San Francisco before I could take advantage of visiting all the other attractions. Still a good deal.
The city pass is an 11, on a scale of 1-10.
Everyone should buy it and save, save, save.
We loved the museums and the Cruise but especially the cable car/bus pass.Thanks

Doing what: Walking Tour of Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach with Cable Car Ride and optional Alcatraz Ticket
Tour guide was informative as well as cheerful. Enjoyed walking around San Francisco instead of driving. I would have like to have gotten the cable car tickets earlier in the day so we could have used them.
If you visit this city you have to use the cable car but the que's are very long . The buses ran frequently between union square and Fisherman's Wharf and using the city pass was usefull. We did a two day city tour so I 'm not sure if I used the city pass enough to be economical. If you stay in the Wharf area you might not use the ticket to its full extent
If you use nothing more than the pass for transportation you save a ton of money! This pass is worth it's weight in gold! The rest of the attractions in the book are a total bonus! The muni system can be somewhat difficult to figure out, but once you do it's great! We managed to use all of the extra attraction passes since we were there for almost a week. I'm so glad we didn't have to worry about digging out money every time we got on a bus or cable car..they have to move pretty fast to keep their schedules. This is defintely the best bang for your buck!! Highly recommend purchasing this pass.
Got to use some of the passes, but not all.
Tried to go to the California Academy of Sciences by car, but could not park since they were flled.Did find one parking spot but luckily i did not park there or i would have gootten a ticket from thew SFPD. I do have a name for SFPD, but you would blush.
A few days later took the F cable car and then switched to the #41 bus, but using thew SF City pass but that was a 45 minute ride on the 41 and packed, not very pleasant looking at armpits and then had to reverse the procedure so by the time i got there and spent an hour in the science it was time to turn around and get back
SF can and should do better then this
Very good pass to visit San Fransisco ; we used the pass for many trip by buses, cable car ; nice boat trip and museum visits .
The CityPass saved me a fortune in just cable car rides alone! Easy to use with some excellent attractions.
CityPass was great to use. Very handy on public transport. Suggest cannot use CityPass in full if there for less than 5 days as so many other natural sights to see. Had three vouchers left however worked out that using Muni, Cable Car,, Cruise and Aquarium, we did not lose money despite not using pass in full.
You just can't miss. We definitely used the transit pass enough to pay for the entire booklet (at $6 a cable car ride), meaning the other things were all icing. And what icing! Spent 5 hours at the Academy of Sciences, loved the Aquarium and Exploratorium, enjoyed the nearly obligatory cruise of the Bay, and made sure to take advantage of $20 off the incredible Go Car tour experience. Seriously hundreds of dollars of value for the $69 we spent per. Absolutely essential starting point for a SF trip!
The most obvious choice when travelling to San Franciso. Considering the prices of the cable car has gone up to $6 each ride this pays for itself. The Aquarium is awesome and for $5 you can up upgrade to the speed boat instead of the the boat tour. Worth every penny!
Excellent value for money especially if you are travelling with children. My 13 year old son loved all the attractions offered. Plus the savings were enormous if you take into account that every cable car ride costs 6 dollars per person!!
